Abstract of my Doctorate Thesis:
Tango –musical genre, poetry, and dance native to the geographical region of the Río de la Plata–, has been mobilized since the beginning of the 20th century by divers means to different cities generating a variety of sound results. This musicological research historically constructs a view on the musical production, distribution, consumption, and regulation around the tango phenomenon in the city of Santa Fe (Argentina) between the years 1920 and 1998. This construction is done from the testimonies of musicians, producers and fans, sound and audiovisual records of tango groups, scores, newspaper documents, contracts, and concert programs, among other documents. The historical narration has a strong sociological imprint made from a critical hermeneutic on the sources to which are added different analyzes of the constituent elements of musical performances: scores, staging, body use and recordings. As consequence, one (another) history is created about the artistic manifestation of tango that does not wish to be conceived as, nor integrate “the history of Argentine tango”.
